Nestled in a brick-walled studio in NYC, artist David Hochbaum cultivates stuning dreamscapes within his painterly photo constructions. Using a potent alchemy of mediums such as carbon transfers, paint, gelatin silver prints, gold leaf, and snips of typographic texts, the resulting images are poetically beautiful; a meditation on the surrealist nature of dreams and how they can inform and change our waking lives. The first installment of an ongoing body of work, ‘Burden of Dreams’, features a stunning juxtaposition of repetitive architectural elements with the sensual bodies of ethereal women. These pale beauties are cast in the roles of celestial adventurers that carry the crescent moon and navigate rough seas crowned with the spires of old cathedrals. This new work is currently showing at Art 21 with Strychnin Gallery through November 1st. View more studio below.
